Abstract: In the form of a virtual cultural-historical route, this article presents two historical topics. One is related to the first large-scale and organized Bulgarian political movement in the nineteenth century - the struggle for an independent church and the creation of the Bulgarian Exarchate. The second topic is the convening and work of the Constituent Assembly in Tarnovo in 1879, which adopted the first Constitution of the Principality of Bulgaria. The exhibition also shows the connection between the Bulgarian proto-state established in the 1870s - the Exarchate and the new Bulgarian state, based on the Tarnovo Constitution of April 16, 1879.
